Location: Baltimore, Md.
Price: $459,000
The Skinny: Perhaps the world's best known starchitect, Frank Gehry is responsible for such sweeping architectural epics as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, L.A.'s Disney Opera House, and Manhattan's new New York by Gehry, but he didn't always design such grandiose buildings. Back in 1965, a young Gehry was tapped to design this bland tower for the Village at Cross Keys, a planned community by Baltimore developer James Rouse. Today, the building is just as unremarkable as it was then, and the penthouses, unlike the $40K-per-month numbers at New York by Gehry, are far from glamorous. This one, a three-bed, 2.5-bath duplex is listed for $459K and includes two parking spaces in the building's garage, along with access to a communal swimming pool and tennis court.
